So there's been some turmoil.
Sweetie's mom was buried in late May, then her sister died suddenly a week and a half later. We hadn't even received the credit card bills for the trip to bury her mom when we received the call. Fucking Hell. What a double whammy to my poor sweetie. :-(
It's been almost a month since this happened and she's less likely to burst into tears than she was but there are still bad days amongst the less bad days.
I try to comfort her, I've taken over most of the cooking and tend to her pretty much non-stop when I get home from work. It's not a an imposition but I really wish for the time when the good days outnumber her bad ones. My poor sweetie.
Nothing of note other than that. Just simple things like teaching my neighbour's 10 yr old daughter how to play the drums. I kind of get why people are drawn to teaching careers; it's pretty darn rewarding when the student clicks into what you're teaching.
Vacation is imminent, so I look forward to some time out on the bike path, nerding out with my D&D friends, visiting Dad and drinking all his single malt, (I jest!), and generally stripping away all the demands on my time and soul from my clients at work. And, of course, taking care of Sweetie "as events warrant".
A shout out to Marjolène who when times were at their darkest appeared on my doorstep as though an angel . Thank you for the music, thank you for the beer. <3
